    So just picked up the Dinobot DLC and it's entertaining to be able to build using Dino-parts (Beast Wars Megatron looks good) but jeez they really did shoehorn the 4 Dinobots into the 4 classes.

    I can't believe that Slug is in the same class as Bumblebee. Also Grimlock's beast mode is almost useless as is Slugs -Swoop is acceptable and I haven't tried Snarl yet.

    I think it would have been much better to have add two new classes - Dinobots and Insecticons. Having a Melee only class would have added some new strategy to Multiplayer too.

    Ah well, there is still hope for a Dinobots escalation map.

    I've been conceiving ideas for years how beast modes could work in this series, so would have liked to see a bit more imagination used when applying them to multiplayer, but actually think they work quite well fit within the existing classes - hopefully should there be a sequel High Moon will be willing to try more adventurous ideas with them.

    Melee only? Seriously? That would suck. And in my opinion, Grimlock is better than any other Titan because you can shoot his tank cannon from a higher angle which makes me use it a lot more.

    Snarl is excellent. the first match i used him i kicked ass

    it would be interesting but you'd get shot up easily and nobody would use the melee class

    Lies. give the dinobots Grimlock's near-unbreakable shield.

    Don't make it indestructible, but make it take ALOT more punishment before it does break.

    That would have to be adjusted in the balancing. The trade off for cqb would be high health and shields with fast regen.

    Dinobot's would be cqb in robot mode and short range projectiles which do lesser damage at distance. Their limitations are balanced by being hard to kill, requiring alot of continuous firepower.

    For the Insecticons, sabotage support abilities would be the key. Trading strength and power for high mobility and dangerous abilities such as: disabling t-cogs, weapon jamming, enhancing ally abilities, making opposition allies look like enemies and allowing fellow insecticons eat downing enemies for an energon recharge.

    Just a rough mapping out of new classes.

    NOPE NOPE NOPEITY NOPE.

    HMS are having enough trouble balancing the classes as it is, adding more would make things a mess.

    They really should of made a Dinobot Escalation map to make it worth the price, let alone the fact that it's all on disc content.

    There would be sooooo many balancing issues with that.

    Grimlock's alt form is the best in the Titan class, don't know where you're getting this "useless" talk from. He's got a height advantage, he can shoot his tank shots down from above with more precision than any bunny-hopping tank could.

    Jesus, there are Dinobot's EVERYWHERE online. Kinda called it on making the DB's not so special anymore now that I'm practically TRIPPING over them now, jeeze.

    I think the fact that you get an advantage with a DLC alt form is just dumb, what's next DLC weapons and abilities?
    Anyway, guessing by the absolutely insane amount of Dino's I'm seeing the Dinobot Destructor Pack seems to of sold ridiculously well, which means that HMS have no reason WHAT-SO-EVER to give us some actual DLC that we actually DOWNLOAD to our game instead of a line of code that just unlocks the content.
    Some new characters maybe (emphasis on the "new") or Escalation add-ons/maps along with Multiplayer maps?

    But the number one thing that would be impressive to see is more SP DLC covering the characters that HMS just lazily "forgot" about and ignored like Ironhide, Ratchet, Wheeljack, Ultra Magnus, Air Raid, Silverbolt, Breakdown, Barricade, Scattorshot, Demolishor, Deadend and Dragstrip along with a MASS of other potential characters they could of included.

    If they do this I think we will have to wait for all the confirmed DLC to be released for atleast 2 weeks

    Other than the T-Rex's minor advantage, I don't think the DLC really gives anyone the edge over anyone else.

    Totally agreed, just hope HMS don't leave this in the dust to work on Deadpool after the amount of hype Teiger forced down our throats.

    All I hope is we get more DLC. At least new maps and new Escalation. Nothing specific, JUST MORE MAPS.
